Internal Medicine


Welcome to the Department of Medicine website at EVMS.  We invite you to learn more about our outstanding education, patient care, and research programs.  We strive for excellence in all three of these missions and we are proud of our achievements and wonderful faculty and residents.  We strive to provide the highest quality of primary and subspecialty care for patients throughout the area.  We train tomorrow’s physicians in both the science and art of medicine with innovative programs.  Our goal is also to provide outreach to meet the community needs to improve the quality of care and patient outcomes.

The subspecialty divisions within the department provide state-of-the-art consultation and outpatient care for patients with specific medical problems, including infectious disease, sleep disorders, kidney disease, hypertension, lung disease and diabetes.

The division of internal medicine also specializes in primary care, general health assessments, and consultation for complex medical problems. Our residency programs are structured to work closely with faculty and staff within each division, conducting research and preparing our students to enter a career in internal medicine or to proceed to advanced training in a subspecialty.

With the mission to improve the health of the patients we serve, the Department of Internal Medicine recruits and retains the best physicians and staff, pursues the highest quality of care, provides extraordinary patient services and promotes a culture of innovation.
